Event description

Description

The Buddha frequently recommended meditating in the wilderness - and for good reason: the peace and serenity of natural environments contributes to the development of concentration. Come join Bhante Suddhaso and the Buddhist Insights crew for another hiking retreat; we'll be spending the day walking and meditating together in Harriman State Park, near the Tuxedo Park train station (on the NJ Transit/Metro-North Port Jervis Line).

Make sure to bring plenty of water. You may also wish to bring insect repellent, sunscreen, a sun-hat, and something to sit on (such as a beach towel).

This is a "bring your own food" event; if you would also like to bring food for the monk, please notify rsvp@buddhistinsights.com

MEETING POINT: 11am at Sloatsburg train station.

He was initially trained in Soto Zen Buddhism at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center.
